The Big Machine Label Group has announced the addition of Brad Turcotte in the newly created position of International Director of Marketing.

In his new role Turcotte will coordinate and liaison with all international distribution partners in regards to all aspects of foreign releases for the Big Machine Label Group. The Big Machine Label Group’s current labels include Big Machine Records, The Valory Music Co. and Republic Nashville.

Turcotte most recently served as an Executive Vice-President with Mathew Knowles and his Houston-based company, Music World Entertainment. Music World is the exclusive management home to Beyonce and Destiny’s Child, among others. Turcotte joined Music World after selling his record label, Compadre Records (Billy Joe Shaver, Suzy Bogguss, Johnny Cash, Trent Willmon, James McMurtry) to Knowles in February 2007, in which he was President and Founder. Turcotte holds a B.B.A./Music Business-Marketing from Belmont University and earned a law degree in 2003.

“This process was a long and tedious one as we needed an executive with a very special set of skills and experience. Brad’s multifaceted background is a perfect fit and his personality, passion and willingness to take on the world with us brought an end to our global search,” says Scott Borchetta, President & CEO Of the Big Machine Label Group. “We are very excited to have him in place as we prepare for Taylor’s worldwide October 25 release of Speak Now.”

“Great successes can happen anytime a label, regardless of genre, is allowed to move and think globally. I strongly believe in Scott’s worldwide vision for the roster and I am thrilled to help execute Big Machine’s long-term International agenda,” says Turcotte of his move.
